Recorded in June, this podcast offers a balanced representation of the competing interests between the Executive and Legislative Branches in Congressional Oversight.  Morton Rosenberg, retired Congressional Research Service Senior Legal Analyst and author of When Congress Comes Calling: A Study on the Principles, Practices, and Pragmatics of Legislative Inquiry, explains the history of and authority for Congressional demands for information from Executive Branch agencies.  Washington attorney William Moschella, a former Congressional Staff Counsel who later became President George W. Bush’s Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legislative Affairs  - the office responsible for DOJ’s responses to Congressional inquiries - offers insight into the considerations accompanying such responses. Chair of the Federalist Society Administrative Law and Regulation Practice Group Eileen O'Connor moderates the discussion. We hope you enjoy it!
